Working with stuck clients

The Training Exchange
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

This is a 1 day course in Bristol (you come to us).

Available for teams in-house (we come to you).

Also currently available (online for individuals) and (online for teams).


We will deliver the training to a smaller group in a large room. We have been working closely with the venue to ensure we have Covid-safe measures and clear guidance in place.

If for any reason the course cannot be delivered face-to-face (e.g. guidance changes, there is a local lock-down, the trainer has symptoms), we will take a flexible and responsive approach to keep people learning – which will include delivering the training on the same day as a live interactive online session, or transferring bookings to the next available dates.


Course overview

Resistance to change is an inevitable part of psychological therapies work. This course provides critical insight into the principle sources of resistance in the client, in the practitioner and in the language. It describes traps we easily fall in to with resistance clients and how to avoid them.

Participants develop an extensive tool box of practical skills and techniques to navigate resistance and develop change even with the most psychologically stuck clients.

Course aims

Develop understanding, skills and techniques to navigate resistance and develop change with the most psychologically stuck clients

Course objectives

By the end of the course participants will have had opportunities to:

  • Understand the three central sources of resistance
  • Explore strategies to monitor and respond to ruptures in the working alliance
  • Develop skills and techniques to respond to resistance in stuck clients
  • Discuss how to overcome resistance even when change is desired
